based on the pic of the digibox, may antenna in sya and catv in.. alin dun ang ginagamit?  was toying at the idea to put the cable line din kasi to see if this box can double as a cable tv channel selector

take note

your reception and channels being recevied will come and go.
because, all of them are still in testing phase.

there will come a time that assigned freq will also change and your digibox may or may not be able to decode. unless an upgrade or re scanning is done.

Hindi ko na try yung catv input kasi Skycable's digital signal requires a sim. Besides, if have cable tv signal, why will you need a Sky Digital TV box.

the first time he offered this digibox and i texted, it was P1,000. when i finally bought yesterday, the price has gone up to P1,500. having said that, the seller seems to be a nice guy naman and easy enough to talk to.

the product really delivers VERY CLEAR reception, albeit, there are very limited channels right now. as mentioned, no other channels except for abs-cbn related programming and also ptv 4. i really don't mind since i don't normally watch on this tv set anyway. i'm located in cubao, qc.

to the mods, can we transfer this thread to the marketplace and let the TS be transparent with the pricing?

Oo nga pala, he is selling.
Should be a thread for Digital TV ISDB-T implementation.

Wait, what? Selling? Kala ko ba free?

Thank you PinoyDVD community  for the overwhelming response. All members who got units from me are now enjoying their HD crystal clear experience. I will not accept anymore reservations until next week na po. Fully loaded na.  :) Technically, the digibox is not for sale but FREE! Kindly delete this thread if violating forum rules. Or you can start discussing your experiences here. Thanks again!

abangan mo si Joey Rebate sa programa ni Ted Failon sa DZMM, 8am to 10am, monday to friday...
puntahan mo kung saan naroon si Joey Rebate at pumila ka, before the radio program ends,
those in the cue are asked, "hulaan mo kung kaninong boses ito", if you are first in the cue
and was able to answer correctly the owner of the mystery voice, panalo ka na na mahiwagang blackbox,
na may kasamang mahiwagang backpack....
normally if the first contestant is unable to answer correctly the question,
then it's raffle time, one of around 30 contestants get to win the box and the backpack
pag nabunot ang number mo....
so join kana at baka ikaw na ang mapiling lucky contestant for the day.....;)

Excuse me, i was being serious though.

Is this digibox being given away free on this thread by the TS
Or is it being sold in this thread by the TS?

you must have misunderstood.....

i do not recall the TS mentioned it was for for free, he is selling those on this thread...

if you want free, then i posted the way to get it for free...

and if you have been listening to Ted Failons' radio program on a daily basis
like i do, you will recognize that what i posted are what Ted used to say in his radio program...

See my quote from the TS on reply# 71.
He did say that it was technically free.
And if he is selling, i did not see any posted price on the device which further made me assume that it was free.

As far as i understood,mhe was only taking reservations to give out a free item.

yes, he did say that...but he is selling those boxes, ABS-CBN is giving them away for free...
i am not sure what DIGIBOX's relationship with ABS-CBN is, for all we know he could be
acting under the behest of the company, that we do not know for sure...

what he meant by technically FREE is that ABS-CBN is actually giving them away for free...

myself was surprised to find someone selling those boxes when they were supposed to be give-aways... ;)

it is true many have been given those boxes for free...
5 boxes a day for 52 weeks is about 260 boxes...
and this has been going on for more than 2 years now as far as i can recall..
most of those who were given belong to the C and D class...
there are times when even tv sets were given away free...

I've talked to the seller 2 days ago ata. The box IS technically free daw BUT you have to buy the ABS-CBN SIM card from him, for P1,500.00.


Ayan malinaw na ha. Basahin ninyo yun fine print, yun nga lang, invisible.

Sorry if I haven't posted this earlier.

Let me also quote the TS to make things clear:

Note that this Digibox doesn't need a sim. The sim Nelson posted is a phone sim. It's a work around since ABS CBN isn't allowed to sell the Digibox. I don't know the OP's relationship with ABS CBN and to be honest, I care little. The Digibox I bought from him works at my place and I am happy.

i think he's selling the tv box and the sim is free. why? i've bought 1 box from him and the included 2 sim cards that are supposedly with P200 load each is almost half nalang. one is P99 and the other one is P110. nagamit pa yata yung load ng sim card kaya ko nasabi na yung box ang binebenta at hindi yung sim card dahil bawas na yung load. dapat nga yata 3 sim card with P200 load each ang included sa box, originally.
But that's ok with me, ang binili ko naman talaga yung tv box with or without the sim card, hindi ko rin naman magagamit yun eh. pinamigay ko lang din yung sim. but the tv box naman is in very good condition.
and i'm very satisfied, 1st time kong makapanood ng abs-cbn sa office ko for a very long time na super linaw talaga, puro gma 7 lang dati, hahaha. ngayon naman tempo. stop yata ang broadcast ng gma in digital, hahaha.

Frank, i live in Morato Ave area. The antenna works indoors when I tested in two rooms. The cable is maybe 4.5 meters long. I don't think this antenna is meant for outdoors.
